Nature, Whale Watching, Wildlife Tour
Brett Soberg (aka “Critter”) is the lead captain & co-owner of Eagle Wing Tours. Born and raised in Victoria, BC, Brett has over 15 years of experience operating within the whale watching industry. He has followed his heart when it comes to his daily work and it shows; he still exhibits the enthusiasm that brought him here. In addition to his water skills he has years of hotel hospitality experience (six years at the prestigious Delta Ocean Pointe Resort & winner of the Hospitality Award). Brett’s adventures are a thrilling, captivating experience: one part display of skill behind the wheel on one of the world’s fastest and most maneuverable boats and another part educational safari. His trademark smile will infect everyone aboard. (The jokes aren’t half bad either.) When other captains are turning back for the harbour Brett goes that extra mile (or many) as he tries to paint the larger picture of our ecosystem and make sure that every guest has had his or her expectations exceeded. Brett is a colourful character who prides himself on detail and being able to provide more than a simple look at the whales. He passionately believes that there is educational merit to all of his tours, and you will see first-hand that whale watching extends far beyond being just a livelihood to him; it is his way of life.
